We’re All (Infected) Ears!
5/8 quad-ears are "ILL" as the on-call pediatrician described them yesterday. Henry has a double. We made 2 trips to the immediate care clinic. (Can you believe Brad hauled 3 of them there by HIMSELF? Yep, that’s my man! Sorry, Babes, just had to tell on ya! It’s quite impressive, after all!)
Shortly after finding out we were expecting 4 babies, the thought of all of having 4 sick babies at the same time haunted me. It has proven to be one of the most difficult aspects.
(Brooks was embarrassed of his puffy eyes and dark circles, so he asked to wear his shades, as a cover.)
And we have 4 bottles of "Pink Potion" (aka Amoxicillin) to hopefully get us over the high fevers, sore throats, and painful ears.
can’t shouldn’t complain. This is our first official ear infection and with four 22 month olds, that’s a pretty good track record.
HOWEVER, because I know that many of you are faithful to pray for our family (to which I am ETERNALLY grateful), I’m asking that you would specifically pray for us to get over this illness. The last 4+ weeks we’ve been faced with high fevers, the Big "D", runny noses, wheezing, sore throats, coughing fits, you name it, and we are BUSHED! I know things could be soooo much worse, we have SO MUCH to be grateful for, and in reality this is just a small little valley, but it has been a difficult trial, nonetheless. I’ve been frequently reminded of James 1:2-3.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance."
Would you join us in praying that we would find "pure joy" amidst this minor trial and that we would persevere? Thank you, friends!
